Eye For An Eye

Sally Field plays Charles Bronson in Death Wish. She and director John Schlesinger are determined to do anything for a buck in this really awful, hysterical thriller about a housewife determined to take revenge on the creep who raped and killed her teenage daughter who’s been set free on a technicality. With Ed Harris (as Fields’s sweetie-pie husband), Joe Mantegna (as a sweetie-pie cop), Kiefer Sutherland, Beverly D’Angelo, and Keith David; adapted from an Erika Holzer novel by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa. If you thought Schlesinger’s Pacific Heights was egregious, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet; do yourself a favor and see Dead Man Walking instead. (JR)
